I used EC Tours 3 times this past week while exploring El Salvador (Ruta De Las Flores, Suchitoto, and Santa Ana Volcano/Lake Coatepeque). Edwin the owner is amazing and responds promptly to everything. He set everything up and will cater tours to your liking. The 2 guides Rene & Stephanie were amazing. They are a wealth of knowledge about their country and you can see how much pride they have which in turn makes you really love El Salvador as well. I would recommend using them even if it's just for the airport transfer.

Organized a week long private tour with Edwin, et al. and we could not have been more thrilled! Edwin went out of his way to ensure everything could be seen efficiently and that no stone was left unturned. In fact, our arrival flight was cancelled due to weather so we arrived a full day late to El Salvador. Despite this, Edwin was able to rework the entire itinerary almost immediately to make sure we still saw everything we had planned to! As for guides/drivers - Carlos is a great driver, as is Edwin (if you go to Conchagua/El Cuco/Golfo de Fonseca). Estefany was our guide for most of the tours and she was spectacular! Tons of energy and knowledge about everything we were seeing - far beyond the average guide. I would not only recommend, but HIGHLY recommend EC tours for arranging your vacation and sorting any logistical requirements you may have. Whether it's mobility impaired, families with young children, language requirements, etc... Edwin and EC Tours have accommodated it all! Lastly - Edwin helped us arrange an antigen COVID test locally (on the cheap), and printed it for us as well. This was essential for the reentry requirements into the US as said time.

Estefany was our tour guide for our 2day weekend getaway trip to El Salvador. Not only she was very professional, friendly, excellent bilingual and charming, her passion towards local El Salvador tourism was absolutely beautiful. We have learnt a lot about El Salvador thanks to her continuous efforts towards exploring and learning all about El Salvador, which we couldn’t have done so much in 2days if we weren’t on this tour! Packed and dense, we have done a LOT on this trip. I heard that all of their tours are private, which was great once again because my boyfriend and I are normally not the kind of people who would eagerly join a tour... We would rather explore and get lost and even enjoy that process. So, when I say we loved the tour, it didn’t come from anywhere easy (haha). Thank you Estefany once again, you guys were so kind and flexible to make all our requests/wishes come true! Local fruit stand, quick El Salvadorian snack purchase, finding the best El Salvador coffee and buying some beans to bring home, pitstop to a local shop where we could buy traditional El Salvadorian accessories and sweets as a souvenir, filling our crave to know anything and everything about El Salvador (sorry we asked you 10,000 questions), and more! Absolutely recommended. If you’re still wondering what to do, contact them and ask for a suggested plan or two, because they have so many options! :)

I've been on a lot of tours in many countries, but hands down EC Tours was one of the best. The team was friendly, knowledgeable, fast, empathetic and went above and beyond to deliver a fantastic experience from beginning to end. We learned about El Salvador's history, ancient culture, modern day and saw beautiful sites. El Salvador isn't usually at the top of folk's list for visiting, and I hesitate to recommend it because I want to keep this treasure to myself, but if you get the chance to go---do it. And book EC Tours. They will take good care of you and by the end, you'll have new friends. Highly recommended. Special shout out to Estefany (she's absolutely the best and the reason we'll be back), Edwin (what's not to love about him? He's a teddy bear with an infectious smile and kind spirit. Elena is working on her English, but even with the basics down, she's great to be around. Rene was nice too! I don't usually leave long reviews, but this team earned it!

Let me start with PLEASE USE EC TOURS especially book Estefany (as your guide) and Alessandro as your driver! My boyfriend and I booked a quick getaway to El Salvador and hoped to make the best of our time there. We wanted to enjoy the beautiful Salvadoran nature as well as history. I messaged EC tours to see if they had a tour that included both nature and history and they did just that while also keeping in adoradable! Estefany was amazing in informing and educating us about all the history of the country as well as making sure we got out the most out of our limited time. We started with a hike to cerro verde which was lovely even for someone as out of shape as me lol amazing views of the three volcanos, we went down la ruta de las Flores, stopped by to enjoy Delicious Salvadoran coffee and then did the termales de Santa Teresa. So much fun, adventure and education. Alessandro made sure we got to our destinations safely. Both he and Estefany were very profesional but also made us laugh and enjoy the time we were together. PleaE book this business if you want to get a fun, information filled and genuine experience of El Salvador.
